Hi!.. can anyone please help me how to get to St. Jean from Lourdes on public transportation? are there taxis that I can rent? what is the normal rate? How about a car rental? Can I rent a car from Lourdes and drop it off at St. Jean?
Thank you much!

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route. 2018 will be Camino #14.

Or... it's a wonderful walk from Lourdes to Canfranc, down the Aragones Route and into Puente la Reina!

Train from Lourdes to Bayonne, and then to St-Jean-Pied-de-Port, or a taxi. I doubt you could drop off a hire car at St-Jean - it is only a small place. Taxi fares in France look as if they vary from about 1 euro 20 (Paris) to 1 euro 80 (Nice), plus a flag fall of a few euros. The cost would depend on the route taken - main road through Pau and Orthez would be faster but further (about 150km), or small secondary roads cross country to Marie Ste Oloron and from there to St-Jean. Have a look at a map.

We once took a taxi from Pau to get dropped back on the Le Puy route (after sending husbands home), and we negotiated a price with the taxi driver at the train station.

I know that you did it, Annie - how long did it take you? Would you do it again?
